Who We Are

My Practice

My experience enables me to offer effective outpatient, individualized, psychological care.  I treat a number of mental health disorders, and provide a safe place to help you through the process of  healing. 

My Treatment Focus

My focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. We achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and developing  a treatment plan based on your own needs. 

My goal

It is my goal to be there for you every step of your journey. To help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.

Wanda Maldonado, MS, LMHC

 

I was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Got my Master Degree in Clinical Psychology at Carlos Albizu University. After completing my Master Degree, I obtained my license to practice as a Clinical Psychologist in Puerto Rico. I worked in my private practice and for years I also worked with the Department of Health and the Department of Corrections. After relocating to Orlando, Florida, I obtained my license as a Mental Health Counselor and since then, I have been working on private practice and with nonprofit organizations. With over 25 years of experience in the field of psychology, I have a thorough knowledge and management of cases requiring assessment, development of clinical treatment plan and facilitation of crisis intervention procedures. I also have exceptional training and instructional skills. 


Having the opportunity to work in different settings within the private and public sector, I had the opportunity to gain vast experience doing individual, group psychotherapy with children, adults and families, working with HIV/AIDS, grief, trauma, depression, anger management, anxiety, adjustment disorders, women's issues and domestic violence. My job is my passion and I will love to help you  learn the skills necessary for you to develop your inner potential and improve your emotional well being.  I am fully bilingual (English and Spanish)
